    At least they are small issues you are having. Good luck getting them sorted out. What do you have in store for your system?

    I just want to upgrade the speakers to 4 ways (either Kicker or Kenwood) and throw in that double din head unit. I am already happy with the sub right now so no plans to change that.

    Finally got the lift on. Only took me about an hour and the results are fantastic.

    Looks great! I think you look fine with the 265's, but I bet a 285 would shove in there because of your front fenders.

    Had to crank a little more on the driver's side torsion bar today. Truck was looking weird so I brought out my my tape measure and that side had settled nearly a full inch! I gave it two more turns and got it within half an inch of the passenger side. I guess with the driver and the gas tank on that side the bar got soft over the years.

    Picked up a new head unit for Red today. I'get gotta say this is one of the best mods I've done to this explorer. Next up is a set of four way speakers for the doors. That might be something I do with my small "gain share" from work. :)

    I sure hope so. I know they will in the back and I may have to crank a little more on the torsion bars in the front. I know I don't have it maxed out at 1.75.

    Anyways, here are some up close pics of the tires. And damn these things are HUGE.

    I also read good reviews about these tires when it comes to rain, which is a big plus where I live. Its been raining off and on for three days.
